HM&F #38 - A sketch challenge

Happy Monday everyone.... Over at House Mouse & Friends Monday blog the wonderfully talented Judith has given us a sketch challenge. You can rotate it, flip it or shrink it as long as you can see the original sketch.

Here is what I came up with...

My adorable House Mouse image is called "Bird Watching" HMJR1008. I stamped the image twice on Whisper White, coloured images with prisma colour pencil crayons and gamsol. Masked one image and sponged on the clouds with soft sky. Cut out image with plain circle nestability and matted with black scalloped circle nestability. Sewed around circle. Cut out the other image and popped up over main image. Added diamond stickles to flower. Main card is 5" X 7". Base is kiwi kiss. Designer paper is from The Sasha Paper Collection. I ran the blue polka dot dp through the cuttle bug with the swiss dot folder, and the pink/blue/green dp through the bug with the floral screen folder. I applied diamond stickles to the swiss dots on the blue dp. Used Martha Stewart scalloped border punch on the blue and black lower edges. Stampin Up border scalloped border punch was used to make the left border on the middle panel. Sewed all edges. Attached pink Martha Stewart ribbon, sentiment and primas. Middle panels are up on pop dots.

Please join us over at House Mouse and Friends, just remember you need to use at least one House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie's image on your card. Make sure you upload your card. Don't forget to check out what the other wonderful DT members have come up with to help inspire you.
